About

#OctoberIs4Livers

October is Liver Cancer Awareness Month! Our #OctoberIs4Livers campaign, launched in 2018, is the first and only global campaign dedicated to public awareness, policy, education, and clinical practice needs to prevent and manage liver cancer. Across the globe, the #OctoberIs4Livers campaign aims to rally stakeholders in creative and impactful ways to support the countless individuals who have heard the terrifying words “you have liver cancer.”

The campaign has created a strong platform, bringing the liver cancer community—patients, survivors, caregivers, advocates, experts, and others—together to increase the global dialogue about liver cancers. We have something for everyone! You bring the passion, and we’ll give you the tools to change the world for liver cancer patients.

  1. Increase Liver Cancer Awareness: A series of roundtable discussions will dissect the barriers impeding the prevention and early detection of liver cancer, with a dedicated focus on addressing care hindrances. These discussions will address the critical significance of prevention, screening, and early diagnosis in combating liver cancer.
  2. Enhance Public Education: Develop educational resources tailored to our community, addressing hepatocellular carcinoma, cholangiocarcinoma, and liver cancer specifically within the LGBTQI+ demographic.
  3. Expand Global Advocacy: Collaborate with healthcare professionals and advocates on a global scale to organize Global Open House events. These localized educational initiatives aim to enhance public awareness and comprehension of liver diseases and liver cancer within diverse communities worldwide.
